20. Wale feat. Jeremiah & Rick Ross “That Way”
Wale is back on the scene with his Maybach Music boss Rick Ross and Jeremiah and wants to know if you like it that way….

Frank Ocean is painless with his hit “Novacane”…
18. Estelle feat. Rick Ross “Break My Heart”
Cool Brit Estelle and her boy Swizz called for peace in the UK and asked to stop the violence that’s been going on over there. Come on guys, don’t break my girl’s heart!
17. Young Jeezy feat. Lil Wayne “Ballin”
Jeezy is still ballin’ out of control…look out for his new album “TM 103” dropping on Sept. 20!
16. Big Sean “Marvin & Chardonnay”
Big Sean is having a dope year musically, but he ran into a little trouble a few weeks ago. He was arrested for sexual assault in New York last week and his lawyer says he will be vindicated. In better news, he was also nominated for Best New Artist at this year’s VMAs!
15. Wiz Khalifa feat. Too Short “On My Level”
Wiz Khalifa is still going strong with Amber Rose, supposedly. Good luck to you my man! And after dating Kanye West she may be a little above his level…#justsayin
14. Drake “Marvin’s Room”
Drake will be on Lil Wayne’s new album “The Carter IV” (how many Carters are there!)…those two always make fire in the studio!
13. Jay-Z and Kanye West “Otis”
Hova and Yeezy released the video for this A-1 track this week. Spike Jonze directed. Its off the hook. Who but Jay-Z and Kanye are chopping up a Maybach in a damn recession?
12. Big Sean feat. Chris Brown “My Last”
Big Sean makes his second appearance on the countdown with Chris Brown…he is currently on tour with Wiz Khalifa and will be on tour with Kanye West and Jay-Z opening up their “Watch The Throne” Tour this fall! This boy is busy…
11. Chris Brown “She Aint You”
Chris Brown just released his first hip-hop mixtape, “Boy In Detention”…He knows a little something about being detained…
10. Trey Songz feat. Drake “Unusual”
Trey Songz and Drake I guess are gonna make a habit out of this collabo thing…well, if it ain’t broke…
Vodpod videos no longer available.
9. Miguel “Quickie”
Miguel describes his style as “retro super future electrik”…cool. But what the hell is that?
8. Lupe Fiasco “Out Of My Head”
Lupe recently called President Obama “the biggest terrorist.” He explained: “I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen…” We live in the US, the man is entitled to his own opinion!
Vodpod videos no longer available.
7. Miguel “Sure Thing”
Miguel started out writing hits for other artists like my man Usher, now his own singing career is a sure thing!
6. Nikki Minaj “Super Bass”
This song is huge for my girl Nicki. It is the highest-charting rap hit by a solo female since Missy Elliott’s “Work It”, in 2002. Work it!
5. Beyonce “Best Thing I’ve Ever Had”
Beyonce is headlining 4 concerts in New York next week to promote her latest album, “4” which is already platinum. The first show sold out in 22 seconds! Damn!
4. Rihanna – “Man Down”
Its reported that Rihanna spends over $20K a week on her hair. That’s “un-be-weavable!”
3. Kelly Rowland “Motivation”
Kelly is still killing the countdown. And she announced that she is going on tour with Chris Breezy in the fall…big ups!
2. DJ Khaled “I’m On One”
DJ Khaled is no longer #1 with “I’m The One” but #2 ain’t bad!
1. Lil Wayne “How To Love”
Alright, Wayne. You are finally The Ruler! Congrats on the #1 spot.
